sss_cache says 'Wrong DB version'
Last modified: 2013-01-11 19:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
sss_cache fails to clear the cache:
$ sudo sss_cache -UG
(Fri Oct 19 07:38:23:724827 2012) [sss_cache] [sysdb_domain_init_internal] (0x0010): Wrong DB version (got 0.13 expected 0.11)
Could not open available domains
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q sssd

The domains are upgraded automatically when the SSSD is started after being upgraded to a package version that uses a newer internal DB version.
Is it possible that you had a domain configured with an old SSSD version, then unconfigured it while the cache was still on the dist, upgraded the SSSD and then ran the sss_cache tool?
btw if you can still reproduce the bug, here's how you can inspect which database has the wrong db version:
for db in /var/lib/sss/db/cache_*; do echo === DB: $db ===; ldbsearch -H $db cn=sysdb version; done
ldbsearch is a part of ldb-tools.
The other reason might be that the cache upgrade really failed -- that would be indicated by a very loud DEBUG message in the logs.
AH, sorry, I was reading the error backwards. The sss_cache was complaining that the database was NEWER than expected.
The 0.11 version is pre-1.9. Can you check what version of sssd-tools you had that produced the error? (sss_cache is still part of sssd-tools, not sssd even though there is a bug to change it)
Here you go:
Name : sssd-tools
Arch : x86_64
Version : 1.9.2
Release : 1.fc18
Size : 560 k
It's likely that I did alternate old and new sssd versions, although don't ask me when and which ones :)
OK, I was playing with sss_cache and trying to break it, but couldn't along my colleague Michal who is fixing and breaking the command line tools all the time :-).
Given that the only way we could reproduce the error message was by really trying to load a newer db version with an old version of the SSSD, we're going to just improve the error message upstream. Currently it's cryptic and scary.
